Hi all, I have reservation for a Model 3 and debating on which range model to get and if I can eventually afford the long range version. The base range of around 350 KM seems unsuitably lean for Australian conditions. For a car that may cost $55,000 on the road it also seems very poor value for money. The longer range version is a hefty premium and bringing the price over $70,000. A return highway trip of around 3 hours will require a top up charge and another charge on completion to avoid cutting a fine line on reserve range. I live in Melbourne and most longer range trips I do are medium range between 150-200KM. I imagine most trips from Melbourne by locals are of these medium ranges also. If I went to Bendigo, I would have barely enough to complete the round trip with some reserve left. Other very popular destination like the Surf Coast and Phillip Island will also be an issue of usable range. Given the projected increase in electric cars there may not be enough chargers at popular destinations during busy times like on weekends to top up without a wait. IMO Australians spec cars should have extended base range of at least 400KM. If not I could see this as deal breaker for many prospective Tesla buyers.
